RAID-0 or RAID-10 Tags: Hard Drives NAS / RAID Cache Caviar Western Digital Storage Last response: February 28, 2007 2:08 AM in Storage Share SecureX February 26, 2007 1:13:17 PM Hi there, I am willing to buy a new computer mostly used for capturing and editing video.. I am thinking of two options regarding hard drives.. option #1 1 x WD Caviar SE (160GB/8MB Cache) for the OS 2 x WD Caviar SE16(250GB/16MB Cache) in RAID-0 for processing video files. 1 x WD Caviar SE16 (500GB/16MB Cache) for backup and archive. option #2 4 x WD Caviar SE16 (250GB/16MB Cache) in RAID-10 which option is better in terms of performance and reliability? is there any significant difference between the two configurations Thanks More about : raid raid mpjesse February 27, 2007 6:48:39 PM I recommend option 1. You may want to consider RAID 5 too. SuperFly03 February 28, 2007 2:08:04 AM I agree. RAID 10 is prone to array degradation. Seriously check out RAID 5 though. It offers the best of most of the raid world. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources Move Windows 8.1 from 4xSSD RAID0 to 4xSSD RAID10?
